Hello everyone! Just thought I'd post a quick update to let everyone know that The Nuva Inn has returned! After over a year of hiatus, the pie saga has been concluded with an extra-long chapter. Matau will also be getting his own finale chapter sometime soon, and of course the Christmas Song Contest will begin as well! Stay tuned for a holiday season filled with Lewa0111ishness!
Nuju: According to the 12th Edition of the New Enhanced Scholastic Collegiate Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the word "Lewa0111ishness"--
Hello everyone! At long last, I finally finished a (belated) Thanksgiving special! Would have gotten it up earlier but I was stuck with writer's block about halfway through it. Ah well, it's there anyway. Check it out!
On a somewhat related note, the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Solstice/Naming Day/whatever season is upon us, and I've decided to do something a little different this time around. On the way home from work the other day, I had some Christmas songs playing and I found myself absent-mindedly singing the lyrics to "Billy the Off-Color Pie," "The 12 Days of TNI," "The First No 'L'," and "Jingle Judge," among others. You know what that means...
The TNI Christmas Story Arc is returning! Yeah, I decided it was high time I got off my butt and went back to Lewa and the gang, just in time for the holidays. I'll be finishing up the last chapter of the pie saga and then getting right into the holiday spirit! I'm sure that wasn't the actual order of things in the original, but it's lost anyway so who cares? Time for some TNI this holiday season!
Of course, I still plan to write a regular holiday one-post on the day itself (or as close as I can), but this will give me more motivation to keep going with TNI. Check back for updates and have a great holiday season, everyone!
Thought I'd provide a few updates for everyone about my comedies and such given that I've been away for a little while. First of all, the Lewa# Studios Holiday Series has returned! "Why Toa Shouldn't Trick-Or-Treat" has just been posted (a few days late, yes; Halloween itself kept me quite busy this year!) Featuring costumed Toa, Tava shenanigans, and some interesting trick-or-treating. Check it out!
Also, BZ-Nui Hack Wars is not dead. Due to an apparent lack of interest in the comedy, I haven't felt too motivated to update lately but I will try to get more chapters up when I can. I've also been taking a glance at Ask Matau! and TNI, but I can't make any promises on those two. If nothing else, once Hack Wars has finished I will repost Comedicle and start continuing that. But we'll see.
Finally, I hope you all had a great Halloween and I will be seeing you all again this Thanksgiving for another installment of the Holiday Series! (And will be busy keeping Tava away from all the pies, of course...)
Praise Mata Nui, I finally finished that slog of a repair job. All four of my main comedies as well as my one-posts have been completely repaired and are back to normal (save Gabriella's Hack Wars chapters but she's told me she will be returning to BZP sometime, so there's that). You all know what that means...I'm out of excuses.
I just updated Hack Wars with a new chapter, and plan to primarily focus on that comedy until it's finished. The occasional chapter of Mata Nova might also get written, and I'll also finish posting what I have saved from my old stuff. Once Hack Wars is done I'll revive Ask Matau! and TNI. It's a difficult thing to think about but I figure I might as well charge ahead and give everyone a few laughs. Besides, Matau will probably be pretty annoyed with me for how long his show hasn't been airing!
So check out Hack Wars, everyone!
P.S. Come Halloween, also be on the lookout for the return of the Lewa# Studios Holiday Series...
Guess who still exists? That's right, this guy. XD
I suppose you've all assumed I left for good, and/or died. I assure you that neither is true, though I feel I probably owe you an explanation as to where I have been all this time. The thing is...I really don't have an explanation other than the difficulty of trying to re-write old material that you know you got right the first time. It's a really difficult feeling (as I'm sure those of you who lost writing of your own from the dataclysm are aware) and I can't tell you how many times I've gone back to a new topic or TNI/Ask Matau!, opened the "reply" page, and just stared at it. I haven't been able to bring myself to try to recount any of the old stuff since.
But with that said, I've made a decision. Most of my currently available comedies have suffered some weird formatting glitch, so I've been at least correcting that little by little. In addition, I plan to commence updating BZ-Nui Hack Wars once again, along with maybe Mata Nova as those are the only two that are all new content and don't need to be "re-written." I will update my profile status thingy (yes, that's the official name of that because I SAID SO, HA ) when that happens.
Thanks for putting up with me through all of this craziness, by the way. I'll get back to re-doing my old ones eventually, I promise! I'll probably even start posting them on a separate blog as well too as backup in case another Dataclysm happens again. Seriously, you guys rock and with any luck I'll be able to start making you laugh once again.
P.S. Along with everything else, I now have a grand total of ZERO questions for Matau's next chapter when I get around to it. Send in those questions if you'd like!
For the love of Karzahni on a pogo-unicycle eating a pizza, why is BZP seemingly such a huge target for hackers!?!?!?!?
Pohatu: By the way, I love--
Every Other TNI Character: DON'T USE THAT JOKE!!
So, yeah. For all 0 of you who didn't notice, BZP got hacked AGAIN. Seriously. For a somewhat-obscure fansite for the discussion of a toy franchise that ended three years ago, we sure seem to be a giant hacker magnet...Anyway, time for the good and bad news regarding my stuff.
Good news: I saved the one new bit of content (i.e. the previous blog post) via Google Caches this time around. I also double-checked Hack Wars, Mata Nova, TNI, and Ask Matau! and nothing has been lost in any of those. So we're all good there!
Bad news: I am gonna have to re-repost my old comedies again from the first chapters. Meaning you'll have to wait even longer for new content.
I'll start reposting tomorrow (Friday,) due to having a double shift at work tonight. Same stuff as last time, so stay tuned!
P.S. If anybody has anything at all saved/remembered from Comedicle/QFTCJP, Pokerahi, Pohatu Puppet Pals, or especially the GMSM series, please PM me with whatever you may have! Those are the comedies I'm missing the most content from at the moment. Thanks!
So...yeah. For those of you who haven't heard, the archives are now officially lost forever from the forums. Now, this would be a mild annoyance were it not for the fact that many, MANY archive topics, including all of my comedies, had lost the majority of their posts several months prior to this, giving me no warning whatsoever. For those of you who are not writers, you have no idea how devastating this is, and is enough to make me nearly want to give up on comedies forever. (Not that I haven't already more or less...but that's another story )
Luckily, I managed to save a very small amount of archive content, both via Google Archives (which saved me during the last Dataclysm as well), and what little I'd saved as Word documents on my computer and hadn't deleted. However, Pokerahi, Pohatu Puppet Pals, and Ga-Metru School Musical 2 have nothing, or almost nothing, saved whatsoever. The rest of the stuff has varying levels of content available that I will begin reposting chapter by chapter starting today. I also have plans to backup all of my comedy writings, both old and new, to the Lewa0111 wiki and/or a blog to avoid something like this happening again.
Well. I think I'm out of excuses. I've been gone for months with nary a peep as to my whereabouts. (Is that how you spell it? I don't know.)
What's been happening, you may ask? Well, sort of a weird combination of business, distraction, and just being lazy. Last June, Gabriella and I both graduated from the college where we went together, and I moved back home, where I spent most of the summer looking for jobs as well as applying for graduate school. This kept me pretty busy for those few months. Then, toward the end of August, I got a part-time offer for work and started working there, which keeps me busy Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for the most part. This was where the laziness came in. I was so busy those three days that all the other stuff I like to do (reading, watching movies, playing video games, etc.) started becoming higher priority for me on the off days when I didn't get to do them, so BZPower sort of fell off the wayside. In addition, I just simply forgot about it. A lot.
Long story short, I have no idea where my schedule might lead me next, but for now, it's fairly regular. I may not have as much time as I'd like to do all the things that I'd like, but I'll try not to forget about BZP again. I updated Hack Wars with a new (fairly long) chapter, and on Wednesday I'll try to have a new TNI or AM! chapter (depending on which comes next in the crossover) up. Hopefully it'll stay more regular from now on, and I'll try to stick as close to the schedule from the last blog entry as I can (though Tuesdays and Thursdays are now out for obvious reasons, and Friday's chapter may have to get moved to Saturday). My apologies once again and here's hoping it actually works out this time!
Again, I apologize for the recent hiatus. Quite honestly, it was just one thing after another, and I had very little time to come back to BZP. Now that that's over, though, I hope to get back to a regular comedy writing schedule on a weekly basis. It will be as follows:
The Nuva Inn: every other day (Ask Matau! "off days) Ask Matau!: every other day (TNI "off days") BZ-Nui Hack Wars: Wednesdays and Saturdays Mata Nova: Mondays and Fridays
Once Mata Nova and/or BZ-Nui Hack Wars is finished (whichever happens first), I will begin reposting Quest for the Comedy Jokes of Power next. The script comedies will continue to be updated indefinitely, though there may be a slip on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which are the busiest days for me in real life, so occasionally I may not have time to update then. If that happens, the schedule will continue as normal.
Thanks to all my fans for continuing to read, promote, and reply to my comedies! You guys (and girls) all rock!
Ah, the life of a college senior is a busy one indeed.
This week and last week have been full of final exams for me, and as such, lots of studying, which is why I haven't been able to find time to update my comedies (or anything else, for that matter) for a while. I'm really sorry about that, but honestly, there really wasn't much I could do about it. Tomorrow (Thursday) is my last final, though, so expect lots of updates tomorrow and in subsequent days!
A forewarning: I will not have any access to the Internet from the 23rd to the 2ndish. Our family will be going to visit relatives for the holidays, and they live in the middle of nowhere with no wi-fi access anywhere. But other than that, I should get back to updating regularly for the most part. Just thought I'd let you all know!
P.S. Also, expect another holiday special sometime just before I leave for the holidays!
